what i am saying is this. When yous tart from a black screen and hit your power button twice it isn't going over 100%. It is going to its full power. The lcd brightness level when you hit it once is less than 100 percent. As you know hte 8700 has a light sensor and it is designed so that when you are in a dark area and dont need as bright of a screen to see it lessens the power usage of the LCD making it the first level of brightness. Then when you are in a light place where glare might be an issue, it uses all of the brightness *the same as hitting the button twice* . So your question was can you make that the default. There should be a setting about auto adjustment of light. If you turn that off and set the brightness to 100% then it will always be as bright as it possibly can be.

Point being- There isn't a % of brightness that is over 100%...
